Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Moroccan rugs don’t come with a key. As with any painting or poem, their motifs have many subjective interpretations. Originally made for personal use, these rugs took months to weave, documenting a shifting tide of events and emotions in the weaver’s life.
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
  • Stripes—a simple and timeless classic
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
Origin

Aguelmouss is a town where many rugs are still produced today by descendants of Beni M'rirt tribes. As a result, rugs from this area are frequently inspired by the Beni M'rirt style, identifiable by their tight double knots and geometric motifs.

Material Details

Wool, a staple in Moroccan rug design, is considered almost sacred to the Amazigh (Berber) people, whose nomadic lifestyle included sheep and goat herding. In addition to being available, wool is durable, long-lasting, and soft—so it’s super comfy to walk and relax on. In this piece, wool warps are flatwoven onto wool wefts, adding enviable body and heft.

Moroccan wool is locally sourced and produces a thick, strong pile that feels soft and fluffy underfoot. A small amount of shedding is to be expected from this natural fiber, but it’s worth it: its high pile is beloved for its wild, tousled texture.

How to Style This Rug

Extra-large rugs bigger than 7’ x 10’ help define larger spaces.
